Ben Affleck's 'Argo' Climbs Its Way to Top of the Box Office

Posted by Sean Oconnell on October 29, 2012

Blame “Frankenstorm,” which threatened the East Coast and kept residents in their homes and in front of their televisions for weather updates. Or point at a less-than-stellar slate of films. Either way, Ben Affleck’s Argo was able to climb to the top of a weak Top 10 in its third weekend, besting four disappointing newcomers.    Affleck’s hostage thriller stars the actor-director as a CIA negotiator setting up a fake sci-fi movie as a cover to rescue Americans... More

Posted by Peter Hall on October 26, 2012

Hopefully this year they all call it a day, though, and just donate the stacks of cash they'd spend on FYC ads to charity. There's only one movie that deserves all of the award talk in 2013. It's called Miami Connection, and it will rock you to your core. More specifically, the Best Supporting Actor conversation starts and ends with a one Vincent Hirsch. This young, fresh-faced Adonis pours his heart and soul into Miami Connection. You will believe that he's a member of a martial... More

Posted by Peter Martin on October 15, 2012

Noah: The massive structure built for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has filled in since we first saw it in July; a new photo (top) gives a greater sense of its size.

Update: Jimmy Fallon Turns Down Hosting the Oscars

Posted by Peter Hall on August 08, 2012

There's currently no word on who the Academy is now seeking for next year's hosting duties.   The L.A. Times is reporting that the Motion Picture Academy, the branch of the AMPAS that actually handles the Oscar awards ceremony, has begun discussions with Jimmy Fallon to host the 2013 Academy Awards, and with Fallon's old boss, Saturday Night Live honcho Lorne Michaels, to produce the ceremony. But, as it seems is always the case when it comes to Oscar hosts, nothing is that... More

Watch: Seth Rogen Trashes Celebrities, Awards Shows and More in His Hilariously Foul-Mouthed Spirit Awards Monologue

Posted by Erik Davis on February 28, 2012

Saturday night brought us this year's Independent Spirit Awards (which saw The Artist win there as well), and while the show itself was a little too tame and a little too predictable, the opening monologue from host Seth Rogen will probably go down as one of the greatest (or at least our favorite) awards show monologues of all time. From calling Brett Ratner a "horrible bigot" to discussing the "serious d*ck acclaim" Michael Fassbender has received for Shame to calling... More
